Registration for 2022 - 23

OPENS MONDAY AUG 15TH

Dance + Develop

 We're so excited about our NEW studio home in San Marco located at 1620 Naldo Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32207. We're having an open house night at 6pm on Aug 22nd if you want to visit.

New features of our studio: The most space we've ever had in the history of Saltmarsh Dance and an aerial clearance and lighting even circus stars can appreciate. We also have space for dressing rooms, office, kitchen and a waiting room for parents and parking. It was worth the wait even if it is down to the wire. Of course, we do have to put in a new floor to fit the space, but given this is our forever home, we're so happy to do it. Here's to our new adventures together!

We focus on building up our students from setting a solid foundation to polishing advanced techniques with master choreography and professional dance development coaching. Our teachers are actively engaged with students during class time and offer additional instruction sessions for our more advanced students who want to work on specific elements for new opportunities. We currently offer class options for all ages in ballet, contemporary, and often bring in special guest artists and performance opportunities throughout the year. Registration is always open, but our official start for registration is Aug 15th, 2022 for this '22-'23 season.

CAUTION

saltmarshDANCE and Suzanne Saltmarsh, created and memorialized a Dance Tribute to September 11, 2001.  CAUTION would blend "en pointe" and the naked foot for the first time and explore the relationship to pain, grievance and loss.

As if it were yesterday
9/11/2001
Time stood still
We held breathe our nation stood frozen
In disbelief we watched
Unable to move
When we caught our breathe
We were irrevocably changed
Now we stand today
In the crossroads
On the track
Of life
That does not cease
We must leap across
The aftermath
The ashes and fears
And bravely go where we must
To a world of Equality and Justice
There is no turning back
Forward into the unknown
We Must March together
To fight for freedom for All
To lift up those in despair and find the commonality
Of our hearts beating together
